      FYI, the working document of the Conference on Bilingual Education
      and the Use of Local Languages (August 3-5, 2005, Windhoek, Namibia),
      entitled "Optimizing Learning and Education in Africa - the Language
      Factor: A Stock-taking Research on Mother Tongue and Bilingual
      Education in Sub-Saharan Africa," can be read at

      URL back together in your browser window]. It is quite long,
      consisting of a number of papers exploring the subject. DZO
